Marvin of the Movies
is quite a guy. As a hobby that started
later in life, he has collected over 35,000
movies. He was in love with movies as a
child and his first jobs were in theaters.
Marvin speaks in classrooms and
universities, has been on TV, and is
regularly on a KABC radio show every
Saturday night. He showed us a short film
of "Bloopers" from old movies, and then
answered a lot of questions.

HAPPY & SAD BUCKS
Paul Westmoreland (The
Prez) … told us how he was conceived in
Texas but was born in California. His eight
older siblings were all born in Texas. He
was wearing a Texas Longhorns T-shirt and
must have been going somewhere toward the
Rose Bowl game with his story. We got lost
and don't know whether he gave Happy
or Sad Bucks.
Tom Burroughs … didn't
know if his Buck was a
Happy or Sad one. He thought the
USC was a class act in their defeat.
Lloyd Welch … had a
Happy Buck 'cause he was $142
richer after the game.
Pat Anderson … donated
three Happy Bucks. 1) She was
called to jury duty but never had to
appear. 2 & 3) Jack Dawson and
George Heing & Sons rescued her 90 year
old friend whose heater went on the fritz.
Frosty Boyd … added a
Happy Buck to Lloyd's
because the USC team was such a hospitable
and courteous team.
Clyde Hemphill … had
a Happy Buck for the
outstanding job done by the LCF Rose Float
team, and a Sad Buck
for Paul's awful T-Shirt.
Howard Backer … had a
lot of Happy Bucks in honor of
his wife's birthday party. 28 children and
grandchildren were there. Howard
wasn't revealing Rhoda's age, but
joined the Century Club (again) because her
years and the number of kids added up to
Ed Moulton … was
Happy he won the 2nd quarter of
the football pool, and donated his $62.50
back to the kitty.
Doris Horwith … was
Sad that Clyde had never
heard that "you should never look a gift
fridge in the mouth."
Deborah Weirick … was
Happy because her husband's
alma mater, the Tulsa Hurricanes, won their
Bowl Game. She was Happy/Sad she got to
attend her first Rose Parade in the pouring
Jeb Long … had five
Happy Bucks for his University of
Texas Longhorn team.
Elizabeth Calciano …
was Happy she could enjoy her
grandson's sense of wonder as he looked at
our LCF float when it was parked in Memorial
Park after the Rose Parade.
Daryal Gant … had five
Happy Bucks in honor of
Clyde Hemphill, who gives so much of his
heart and body to the community.
